Server monitoring

A Hyper-V server is a physical component required to begin building a virtual infrastructure. Hyper-V servers provide hypervisor-based architecture for controlling and managing resources for the virtual machines that run on it. Virtual machines running on a Hyper-V server share the server’s resources.

To review data collected about a specific server or all servers, make your selection in the Quick-View.

Servers view

The Servers view is a tree view. It lists the servers that exist in your environment and shows their state.

This view appears in the Quick-View on the left when you select the Servers tile in the Virtual Environment view.

Figure 34. Servers view

Selecting the All Servers node displays overall resource utilization for all servers in your integrated system, and the elements that consume the highest amount of system resources in the Summary - All Servers view on the right. Similarly, selecting a server node shows server-specific metrics in the Server Summary view.

Alarm severity. The state of the most recent alarm raised against the associated server.
All Servers. A parent node for the server object instances that appear in this view.
Server. The server name.

Summary - All Servers view

The Summary - All Servers view displays overall resource utilization information for a group of physical servers and shows the elements that consume the highest amount of system resources.

This view appears in the Quick-View on the left when you select All Servers in the Servers view.

Figure 35. Summary - All Servers view

This view is made up of the following embedded views:

Table 21. Alarms

Lists the alarms generated against the monitored system.

Alarm Message. An explanation about why the alarm occurred.
Severity. Indicates the alarm severity: Warning, Critical, or Fatal.
Time. The time at which the alarm was generated.

Drill down on:

Severity. Displays the Alarm dialog box, showing additional information about the alarm. For more information about alarms in Foglight Evolve Cloud, see the Foglight Evolve Cloud User Help.
